It was one year ago today that my vet came out to my house to help me say goodbye to dear HRH, Toby.
Toby laid on the floor with his head in my lap as he had done so many thousands of times in the past almost 14 years, and we said goodbye to each other.
I still miss him every day. I can't believe it's already been a year, he is such a part of my heart it feels like he was just here.
"Whisper my name in your heart and I will be there"

Miss you sweet Toby, my Tobias, my Toby dog, His Royal Highness....

Hotel....a tough day for certain. Today, my dogs benefit from your loss... for in memory of sweet Toby, your Tobias, Toby dog, HRH.... I'll sign off for now and spend the time outside with my dogs instead of at the computer. Thanks for reminding me how quickly time speeds by and how precious each moment is.

OH Barb - no matter how many years will pass you will always remember them thru their lives and that particular hard day.

Toby has a special place in your heart and he will be there forever!

It is strange to think that a year has already passed. You gave HRH the love and care he needed until his earthly time ended. I consider myself lucky to have come to know he and you through my time on this forum.

Nothing harder than the "firsts", Barb, especially the first anniversary of your boy getting his angel wings. Wishing you more smiles than tears today as you remember your great bond and all the wonderful, difficult, and sweet times you shared with HRH.

Golden retrievers think life is a party thrown especially for them

Thanks for the kind words. The support of my friends here on the forum is what has helped me get through the tough, sad times.
Everyone, please, in memory of sweet Toby spend an extra few minutes with your dogs tonight. Their lives are so short (and his was longer than most!).
